About PEX Poly Expander F1960 Couplings
A PEX poly expander coupling refers to a specific type of coupling used in plumbing systems that is designed for connecting two sections of polyethylene (PEX) piping. It is called a "poly expander" or F1960 coupling because it is intended for use with PEX A tubing and utilizes the expansion method of installation. It is also referred to as a PEX A fitting.
The term "expander" indicates that this coupling is installed using a specialized tool that expands the PEX tubing temporarily. The expanded tubing allows for easy insertion of the coupling, and as the tubing contracts back to its original size, it creates a secure and watertight connection.
PEX poly expander couplings are typically made of a durable material to ensure strength and longevity in the plumbing system. They are designed to withstand the pressures and temperatures commonly found in residential and commercial plumbing applications.
